demonstrate unequivocally why diplomacy is right up there with defense. it is because we are united and committed to do whatever is required to fulfill the missions we have assumed as public officials and public servants. so next week, i would expect that all of you will be as focused and dedicated for secretary kerry as you have been for me, and that you will continue to serve president obama and our nation with the same level of professionalism and commitment that i have seen firsthand. on a personal basis, let me wish all of you the very best, whether you have been here all week, or 30, or even 40 years, pat. [laughter] let me give you the very best wishes that i can, because i am proud to have been a part of you. i leave thinking of the nearly 70,000 people that i was honored to serve and leave as part of a huge extended family, and i hope that you will continue to make yourselves, make me, and make our country proud. thank you all, and god bless you.

of those conversations. i know the effect on defense is on everybody's minds when it comes to the sequester. how could we do a better job of making it clear just how much is at stake here? >> it's a great question. it's interesting the person i had a chance to meet with who is here and part of the program told us quite frankly that he never thought he would need government help. he never needed unemployment insurance, he was employed living his life thinking everything was going fine and then discovered a disease in which only the work here would give him a chance to enjoy a future. he's now a strong advocate for the n.i.h. i'm afraid that many americans just don't personalize what is done here. they live in the moment rather than remembering the past and their expectations for the future. that is not the majority of americans. the majority of americans strongly support the work that is done here and want to make sure that you have adequate funding for it. the majority of americans want sensible policies for this country. they want to us deal with the deficit in a way that provide

future. they like to spend taxpayer money on tax cuts and defense programs they think are okay. their position to decide the debt was the worst problem in the world, it is highly determined by who is in theas all of you know. we have a big debt problem and it cannot be solved right now by conventional austerity measures. that is why paul krugman is right. you get in to the downward spiral and drag the country back into recession. we need a jobs program. i have a lot of ideas on how you can do it. we need a strategy to promote innovation, started businesses coming keep the manufacturing sector expanding combat repatriate and bring back investment in america, money that is the overseas. i personally would favor letting a lot of that money be brought back if a certain percentage was investing in an infrastructure bank in america. [applause] the rate of return on the infrastructure is so high, including i.t. infrastructure, you could sell the investments like you would bonds. i will give you 6% tax-free rate of return if you invest here. if you could get some of that repatriated money inv

, in some ways, there is a bizarre defense mechanism that makes people feel more secure about their own jobs in a fragile economy. i think there is a lot of complex factors going on here. it is certainly eroded very deeply in a complete misunderstanding of just how bad the economy and the recovery has been. host: what is the best way to protect these people? guest: is important for them to be honest and talk about why you lost your job and talk in detail -- if it was because the company went under or there were massive layoffs or the industry were working in started suffering -- talk in detail about all you have done to try to get re-employed. employers don't wish -- don't want to hire lazy people. people are out there actively looking. discuss the creative and intense efforts to have made to find a job. talk about what you have done in the meantime. there are many people out there continuing their training or education. they volunteer in the community, perhaps taking on a new role and their families. i know a number of families where one person who was the breadwinner before the re
